Welcome to Volunteer Income Tax Assistance

**** APPOINTMENT SCHEDULING FOR THE 2019 FILING SEASON (TAX YEAR 2018) WILL BEGIN JANUARY 20, 2019.  ****

 

The West Michigan VITA Collegiate Partnership provides free income tax preparation for low to middle income households. The IRS-sponsored VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) program partners with community groups to help families, seniors, and the disabled e-file their tax returns. Every year millions of dollars in tax refunds and credits go unclaimed by those who need them the most. We wish to help West Michigan families receive the tax refunds and credits that enable them to stay in their homes, feed their families, keep the lights on, and save for the future.

Our volunteers have been IRS-certified . We have tax sites in Kent, Barry and Ottawa counties.  Check out our site locations and hours of operation below .  Schedule your tax appointment  online or use our map to find the location nearest you.  Appointments can be made after January 20, 2019.  Please note that if a site allows walk-ins, they are served on a first-come first-served basis after all appointments are completed.

This year’s income limits are:  $27,000 for individuals and $57,000 for families.

 

All appointments may be scheduled via phone by calling 2-1-1 in the county for the site you wish to schedule unless a different phone number is listed under a specific tax site below.
 


Limited website scheduling is available below.  If no day is available on the website schedule, the day is then booked and you must call the phone number stated to schedule an appointment.  (616) 871-6147 will only be available to report tax issues for tax returns that we prepared.  We can no longer use this number for scheduling tax appointments for you.
